Zoo Holds Annual Science And Engineering Fair

Some of the area's youngest and brightest minds were at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo on Saturday. Nearly 250 students from 22 area schools showed up for the 29th Annual Metropolitan Science and Engineering Fair.

Students ranging from seventh to 12th grades submitted research projects, studying a variety of subjects. The zoo is one of the sponsors for the fair each year. It wants to promote an interest in engineering and science in students' minds.

"They're developing their creativity, their inquiring minds, asking questions, investigating, so they're going through the whole scientific process," said the zoo's Elizabeth Mulkerin.

The top five projects in each division qualified for the state competition in Lincoln on April 11th.
